3 contend for spot on Wisconsin Supreme Court

MADISON, Wis. -

The field of three candidates running for Wisconsin Supreme Court is about to be narrowed.

The lowest vote-getter in the Feb. 19 primary will be eliminated in the race, with the top two advancing to the April 2 primary.

Justice Pat Roggensack argues she deserves another 10-year term because she is the only candidate with judicial experience.

Challengers Vince Megna and Ed Fallone say the court is dysfunctional and Roggensack has to go because of it.

Megna is a lemon law attorney from Milwaukee who is calling for candidates in the nonpartisan race to declare their party affiliations and take stands on issues.

Fallone is a Marquette University law professor who has the backing of several labor unions in his first run for office.
